Alliance for Global Sustainability


The Alliance for Global Sustainability is a partnership of four scientific and technological universities – the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, The University of Tokyo, Chalmers University of Technology, and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, and their associated partners. It was formed in 1997 in the conviction that closer collaboration amongst some of the world's leading research institutions would lead to faster progress towards sustainability. Students can get an online college degree from an accredited college or university, and apply for graduate jobs later.

There are many works presented which drew mainly on results of the research being carried out in the Alliance for Global Sustainability (AGS). The level of presentation is for graduate students in natural, social and engineering sciences, project management courses as well as policy and decision-makers around the world in government, industry and civil society.
